PREFACE. 
1291859 

In presenting this volume to its patrons and the public, it is 
the hope of the compiler that it will prove the valuable book of 
reference which it is intended to be. It has been with pleasure 
that we have labored to compile and publish a work representing a 
city that is the terminus of eight lines of railroad — the Great Rail- 
road Center of the i^orthwest — destined to be one of the greatest 
cities on the line of railroads communicating between San Fran- 
cisco and Xew York. 

The work contains a business aiid resident directory, business 
cards, local and statistical matter, an item of each railroad in the 
city, a history of the city and surrounding country, a short history 
of all the adjoining counties and the principal towns, with a classi- 
fied business directory of each. 

The Directory has an extensive circulation in every adjoining 
county, as well as in the city, and on all the lines of railroad lead- 
ing out of the city. 

Thanks to all who have, in any way, encouraged the work 
which we now present, especially to the City Council, for their en- 
couragement to the enterprise. 

Pains and expense have not been spared to make it creditable 
alike to patrons, place, and compiler. Hoping that Council Bluffs 
may speed its way forward as rapidly in the future as it has in the 
past, until it becomes what it is destined to be, the greatest and 
most interesting city in the Northwest, we bid all a kind farewell 
until next year. J. P. Bushnell, Compiler.

BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF 



COUNCIL BLUFFS, IOWA. 



Settlement of the State-Early History of Council Blufifs-The Great 
Railroad Center of the Northwest— Its Past Growth, 
Present Prosperity, and Future Prospects. 



Much of the earlier history of Iowa is involved in tradition- 
ary recollections, and not until it was almost too late has any ef- 
fort been made to rescue the earlier incidents from oblivion. The 
services rendered by the State Historical Society in the matter are 
not to be lightly regarded by those who take an interest in con- 
trasting her beginning and her attainments of wealth, growth, and 
prosperity. 

Bancroft, who has carefully preserved, with historical fidelity, 
the facts relating to the tribes and original discoverers of the great 
Northwest, gives only a few chapters on Iowa, or the territory now 
called Iowa, but which, at the date covered by his last volume, was 
more distant from the Atlantic States than China and Japan is from 
us now. 

Father Marquette, through missionary zeal, crossed the Mis- 
sissippi, and was the first white man known to have set his foot 
upon the prairies of Iowa. 

September 22d, 1*788, Julien Dubuque, a Frenchman, arrived 
at the place now taking his name, and purchased from the Fox ; 
Indians the lands now included within the boundaries of the city. 
Dubuque was we believe, the first regularly organized town in the 
State. 

Robert Lucas was the first territorial Governor, and was ap- 
pointed in 1838. The first Legislative Assembly was held at Bur-

lington, November l2th, 1838. In 1841 the territorial capital was 
removed to Iowa City, where it remained until the admission of 
the State, in 1846, and was the State capital until 1858, when, on 
the 11th of January of that year, the Seventh General Assembly 
began its session at Des Moines. 

Notwithstanding the removal of the capital from Iowa City, 
it has continued to flourish, having now a population of about 
10,000 inhabitants. It is the permanent seat of the chief educa- 
tional institution in the State — the Iowa State University — endowed 
and fostered by the commonwealth. Its public schools rank high, 
and the Law School, forming a part of the University, turns out 
as good lawyers, and as many of them, as any other institution of 
the kind in the country. It has the capacity to furnish all the law- 
yers needed in the State for many years to come. 

The prestige and influe:^ce of the State capital being transferred 
from Iowa city to Des Moines, the latter has grown up with won- 
derful rapidity, in the midst of one of the finest agricultural re- 
gions in the world. It has the advantages of a fine water power, 
which is rapidly becoming utilized, and the contributions of two 
important railways — the Des Moines Valley and the Chicago, Rock 
Island and Pacific, the latter connecting it with Council Bluffs — 
making it a place of no small importance to those proud of the 
growth and energy of our young State. 

Nearly every city in the State is connected by rail with Coun- 
cil Bluffs — Burlington, Keokuk, Davenport, Fort Madison, Mar- 
shalltown, Waterloo, Mount Pleasant, Oskaloosa, Fort Dodge, 
Cedar Falls, Cedar Rapids, and Sioux City — all growing and pros- 
perous beyond precedent. 

The city attracted most by the capital and enterprise of the 
east is 

COUNCIL BLUFFS, 
The great railway center of the new Northwest. Among the first 
settlers were R. and David. II. Hams, the latter being 
the first white man who settled on the spot occupied by the town. 
He was sent here by tlie United States Government, in 1837, as an 
agent to instruct the Indians in agriculture, etc. This was previ- 
ously made the liome of tlie I*ottawattamies, by removal from 
Michiijan. Tin; Harris family built the first dwelling, on Madison 
street above tlic site of the present Methodist Episcopal Church, 
on liroadway, ))ctweon tlie church and tlic fort wliich was at the

head of what is now Broadway. R. S. Harris lives on the Lewis 
road, ten miles from Council Bluffs, and his brother resides still in 
the city, which he has seen grow up magically about his father's 
cabin. 

Of the early settlers there still remain: D. C. Bloomer (the 
present Mayor), Frank Street, L. W. Babbitt, George Doughty, 
J. P. Cassidy, Cornelius Voorhis, S. M. Smith, John Keller, S. S. 
Bayliss, J. B^yliss, J. C. Fargo, Captain Bell, Sam Paine, D. W. 
Price, Dr. Honn, Dr. McMahon, J. D. Honn, S. A. Robinson, W. W. 
Maynard, J. W. Ross, J. T. Stewart, Sam. Haas, Marshall Turley, 
Jerry Folsom, Rev. Rice, David Devol, J. B. Lewis, C. Thornton, 
D. B. Clark, Rev. Winchester, Wm. Mynster, R. D. Amy, Thomas 
and Ed. Jefferis, Thomas and David Tostevin, Thomas Officer, W. 
H. M. Pusey, J. Smith Hooton, C. E. Stone, Wm. Powers, Dr. 
Williams, John Rudd, Samuel Riddle, W. D. Turner, D. W. Car- 
penter, Frank Guittar, and Henry Delong. 

The town, as it grew up around the military and freighting 
post, took the name of Kanesville, called, we understand, after 
Elisha Kent Kane, the celebrated and lamented Arctic navigator, 
and whose brother added additional luster to the name by his 
meritorious services as a Union soldier in the late war. The 
discovery of gold in California increased the importance of 
the place as the point of departure of emigrants to the glittering 
mines of the new Eldorado. 

After the expulsion of the Mormons from Nauvoo, Illinois, 
they sought refuge at this point, in 1846, on the Eastern bank of 
the Missouri River. Encroaching emigration, and a consciousness 
that they had not yet reached the land destined for their permanent 
habitation, led them across the wilderness into Utah, and they in 
1862 abandoned the houses and homes built and prepared here. 

Twelve or fifteen years ago the Chicago, Rock Island and Pa- 
cific Railroad was projected, under the name of the Mississippi and 
Missouri Railroad Company, and to Hon. Henry Farnam, whose 
name is still preserved in the nomenclature of our streets, had 
charge of the bill before the Iowa Legislature. Then any spot 
ten miles either north or south of this was designated as Council 
Bluffs, but to make the matter definite in the charter, he procured 
the point designated as Kanesville for the terminus of the road, and 
subsequently, to conform to the name selected as the terminus, 
Council Bluffs, the name Kanesville " was dropped, and the place

incorporated, by special act of the Legislature, as the " City of 
Council BlulFs." 

The Mormon claims had been purchased by energetic men, 
who at once set to work tearing down the habitations of the 
" saints," and erected good buildings in their stead. From this 
time forward, the population and trade of the city have steadily 
and rapidly increased, until Council Bluffs now ranks, in point of 
business and wealth, as one of the first-class cities of Iowa. 

It was prophesied that there must be, somewhere in this lo- 
cality, another large city, ranking with New York, Chicago, St. 
Louis, and San Francisco, and that Council Bluffs was to be the 
place, in view of it being the point where the railroads — North, 
South, East, and West — were centering. It is no speculative idea 
to-day, as to the place where will be the great railroad center, for 
we have already seven railroads converging here, within the 
corporation, on a section or two of transfer gronnds, in a good 
part of the city — west of town, south of Broadway — where the 
Union Depot will be. We need only think of the rapid growth of 
our city to know that before long it will be the metropolis of the 
Northwest. 

Council Bluffs is well named. It is, as most our of readers 
are aware, situated at the base of those beautiful bluffs that range 
along the Missouri River, and which, at this point rise almost per- 
pendicular about 80 to 100 feet above the the city. The city has 
commenced to spread out on the bottom lands lying wost and south, 
and, eventually, all that will divide it from Omaha will be the 
river. 

The main part of the business is at present done near the 
bluffs, but is rapidly reaching over the beautiful plateau westward, 
towards the river. 

The surrounding country is abundantly supplied with streams 
of the purest water, upon the banks of which streams are found 
plenty of different kinds of timber. 

The growth of Council Bluffs has been very rapid since the 
advent and opening of the Northwestern Railway, and from eight 
to twelve hundred houses have been erected in each of the three 
years since then. Added to this is the completion of the St. 
Joseph & Council Bluffs Railroad connecting this point with 
St. Joseph, Missouri, and giving a double line, one direct to Chi- 
cago by the way of Quincy, Illinois, and the other to St. Louis by 



14 



COUNCIL BLUFFS DIRECTORY. 



the way of the North Missouri Railroad. The Chicago, Rock 
Island & Pacific Railroad, just open and in successful opera- 
tion, gives another air line to Chicago and the East. This puts 
us in communication with Des Moines, the Capital of the State, 
and with Davenport, one of most active and flourishing cities on 
the Mississippi. The Sioux City & Pacific Railroad gives us an 
outlet to northwestern Iowa, Dakotah and western Minnesota, and 
on the completion of the Iowa Falls & Sioux City Railroad this 
fall, we will have another direct line to Chicago by the way of 
Dubuque. The Burlington and Missouri River Railroad, now 
within seventy-five miles of this place, will add a fourth railway 
to Chicago, and with other lines in contemplation, this will em- 
phatically increase in importance as the great railway center, 
which it now is, of the New Northwest. For particulars of the 
great bridge over the Missouri River, see page — . 

THE UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD. 

This great work, whose initial point is Council Blufis, having 
been located here by proclamation of Abraham Lincoln, confirmed 
by the Interior Department, and accepted by the Union Pacific 
Railroad Board of Directors, will, on the completion of the great 
bridge across the Missouri, have its transfer grounds, oflices, 
workshops, depots, and all other buildings Avithin the corporate 
limits of the city. 

POPULATION. 

The population of Cvouncil Bluffs, by the census of 1860, was 
a little over two thousand, and on April 1st, 18Q1, was estimated 
at eight thousand. 

A careful survey of the improvements now (1869) warrant us 
in saying that the population is fully eleven thousand, and in this 
candor can detect no exaggeration. 

AREA. 

1)1 area ('ouncil Bluffs includes twenty-four square miles, all 
suitable and laid out for building purposes. The bluffs furnish the 
choicest building spots, whilst the j)Iateau gives excellent lots for 
business j>urposeH. The city is spreading out over them with un- 
precedented rapidity, botli in the erection of handsome and com- 
fortable dwellings, and solid, imposing, and beautiful business 
blocks.

PROSPECTS. 

What facilities, it is asked, has Council Bluffs, either natural 
or acquired, for becoming the commercial center? We have said 
that we have citizens who are wide-awake; that we are building 
extensively and substantially ; but we look beyond and beneath 
all this. It is necessary to omit all exaggeration — to ignore the 
great expectations of the citizens, and survey, if possible, the 
foundation upon which the greatness of our city must rest. Un- 
like the Iowa cities on the Mississippi, which are numerous, Coun- 
cil Bluffs and Sioux City are the only rivals on the Missouri, and 
they are so dissimilarly situated as hardly to be called rivals. 
This will allow the former to make a far greater growth than it 
could otherwise hope to attain. It is destined to be the best rail- 
road center west of Chicago. Please take a glance at the map, 
and think of the prospective roads whose termini will be Council 
Bluffs, and remember that this is, and must always be, the initial 
point of the Union Pacific Railroad, and that the roads east, west, 
north and south, are extending their arms for their share of the 
overland freight which must come to the extensive transfer grounds 
here, where the Union Pacific Company have bought 1,080 acres 
of land. Don't say that company don't know what they are doing. 
Are not all the roads looking to a connection with the great conti- 
nental thoroughfare ? What does this indicate ? Do you say the 
Pacific railway commences over the river ? Certainly it does, to- 
day ; but do you suppose the company will always ferry their cars 
over the river ? Or do you anticipate that, when the bridge is 
completed, these seven railroads will use it, instead of one ? Or 
do you suppose the company will give up the lands purchased ex- 
pressly, and as expressly designed by nature, for a transfer depot, 
and go out of their way, at great inconvenience, and with no hope 
of finding so good a place within reasonable distance of where 
it should be ; and all because some dissatisfied party thinks it 
should? No; the managers care little for Council Bluffs, or any 
other town; but they are supposed to have practical common sense, 
and to act from an enlightened self-interest. 

When there is a beautiful plain, as there is here, where the 
transfer grounds are located, is it to be supposed that any com- 
pany will leave such advantages, and expend millions of dollars to 
make suitable grounds, as they would have where they are now lo- 
cated. Omaha has no place for transfer grounds such as would be 



I 



16 COUNCIL BLUFFS DIRECTORY. 



necessary for the convenience of as many roads as are centering in 
this city. 

We do not boast at all, but, as we have canvassed the place, 
we can speak from facts. If a year ago the business of the place 
was estimated at $5,000,000, what has it been the last year but al- 
most twice that ? With our great tide of emigration this year, it 
must be greater than ever before, by far, as houses are being rap- 
idly built. 

One of the great advantages which Council Bluffs claims over 
all rivals, is, that it is backed by a farming country which can 
scarcely be excelled. It is a well-known fact that Omaha, and 
many of the large western cities, as well as the mining districts, 
are fed by the farmers of Western Iowa, and that a large share of 
this produce is bought in Council Blufl^. It is plain to be seen 
what will be the final result. The farmers in Western Iowa will 
rapidly become wealthy, having one of the best markets in the 
country, and easily accessible. The merchants of Council Bluffs 
will have the first and largest profits after the produce leaves the 
producer's hands. It is safe to say that the lion's share of the 
profits of the immense productions of Western Iowa will remain 
east of the Missouri River. Now that the Union Pacific Railroad 
is finished, the towns on the west bank of the river, which have 
heretofore been supported by the western trade, will find other 
cities springing up, which will give equal advantages, but the 
advantages of Council Bluffs can never be transferred to any other 
point. The Missouri River and the initial point of the Union 
Pacific Railroad fixes this point as the railroad center. Our rich 
farming land, wliicli is the foundation of wealth, can never be 
moved. Our advantages are, therefore, permanent, and not acci- 
dental, or subject to other laws than the laws of nature. Some 
speak of Omaha that she is a place of importance, but the natural 
advantages Council Bluffs has over Omaha are plainly seen to-day. 

It will be well for capitalists, and particularly for men with 
moderate means, desiring to acquire rapidly, to give their closest 
attention to the attractions which Council Bluffs now offers to 
them over any city in the West. The peculiar railroad advantages 
of Council J31uffs must be at once ai)parent to the most casual ob- 
server. With seven lines of railway, north, east, south and west, 
and the longest single lines in the world; a Pacific Railway bridge, 
with its tremendous transfer business, railroad workshops and

offices, make up a grand natural situation for a city seldom equaled, 
never surpassed. The at present cheap rates of real estate, and in 
view of the large mechanical population which will be brought 
here in the construction of railroads, bridges, depots, and other 
works, we know of no other place on the American continent 
which presents better opportunities for the investment of capital, 
or which promises a more enduring prosperity. Council Bluffs, 
unlike many Western cities, is not built up by borrowed capital. 

For the Western trade, what town so favorably situated? 
With the before-named advantages, to make it the market for West- 
ern Iowa, and insuring it cheap transportation from the east, it 
could not be better situated in reference to this trade ; and it may 
reasonably be expected that in due time its shipments of mer- 
chandise and produce to the plains and mountains will be very 
heavy. Indeed, the start already made in this direction is some 
indication of .what may be expected in the future. 

Viewed in the light of these facts. Council Bluffs possesses no 
ordinary interest ; and he who studies the situation disinterestedly, 
will not undervalue its importance, or ignore its well-grounded 
hopes of future prosperity and greatness. It cannot hope to rival 
Chicago, or eclipse San Francisco ; but it may reasonably expect 
to be the metropolis of Iowa. 



POTTAWATTAMIE COUNTY. 

The County of Pottawattamie was organized in 1851, by an 
act of the Legislative Assembly, and named in honor of the In- 
dians who had last inhabited the county. The same year, the 
county-seat was established at Kanesvilie, by a vote of the people 
of the County. The name of the town was subsequently changed 
to Council Bluffs, which is the only town of any importance in the 
county. 

This councy contains more than half a million acres of the 
best farming lands in the West. The surface is gently undulating, 
well watered by streams fed by springs, watering nearly every sec- 
tion of land. In the western part of the county timber is abun- 
dant — Cottonwood growing in the Missouri bottoms and hard wood 
upon the hill sides — while the eastern portion of the county is but 
moderately supplied. There it is found skirting the larger

Streams, with one or more groves within the limits of nearly every 
township. It is well adapted to grain growing or grazing, and is 
every way calculated to support a large agricultural population. 
Less rough than some counties adjoining it, it contains some of the 
best lands adapted to grain growing. We think the upland is 
mostly very fine in this county, though somewhat rolling, yet not 
sufficiently so to interfere with easy and profitable culture. 

The County is rapidly filling up and being improved by enter- 
prising farmers from the East. The ready market found at Coun- 
cil Bluffs for everything produced by the farmer, and the rich re- 
munerative yield from everything planted in the soil, are rapidly 
enriching the farming community. 

Pottawattamie county is a little south of the center, and on 
the west side of the State of Iowa. It has Harrison and Shelby 
counties on the north, Cass on the east, Montgomery and Mills on 
the south, and the Missouri river on the west. 

The surface ut the county is diversified by hills, valleys, and 
plains, groves of timber and prairie, and watered by numerous 
springs, brooks, creeks and rivers. 

In some parts of the county limestone rock is plenty. As 
yet there has been no stone coal discovered in the county. 

The soil appears to have been formed by decayed vegetable 
matter, and the land is very productive. 

The climate is temperate, and congenial to the growth of 
hemp, wheat, corn, rye, barley, oats, potatoes, and fruits, such as 
apples, pears, plums, grapes, cherries, tfcc, &c. 

As regards health, there is no place known to us more healthy. 

The county contains about 600,000 acres — is twenty-four miles 
wide from north to south, and about forty-two uiiles in length from 
east to west, and is divided into twelve civil townships, viz : Kane, 
Walnut Creek, Knox, Center, Silver C-rcek, iMacedonia, James, 
York, Crescent, Boomer, liockyford, and Grove. 

Now is the time to purchase farming lands. Prices are low. 
in tlic interior of the county land can be bought for ti-om three to 
live dollars per acre — time usually given on one one-half the pur- 
chase money, l)y paying ten per cent, interest. 

While the adjoining counties of iMills, Cass, Audubon, Shelby, 
and Harrison are e(iual]y favored in soil, water, ami timber, we 
think all must concede that, in r;ii Iroad faciliticss, and in furnisliing 
transpoi-tatioii for j)i-od)ic(' raiscil within htu-dci-s, Pottawatta- 
mie bears the palm.

COUNTY COURT HOUSE. 

Some four years ago, Mr. E. McBride, then a member of the 
Board of Supervisors, deeming that onr county required a Court 
House, the matter was laid before the Board, who appointed a 
Building Committee, composed of Hon J. P. Casady, J. M. Philips, 
Thomas Officer, and Wm. Ward, to procure plans for the building. 
Mr. Ward being an architect, and wishing to furnish plans, re- 
signed his position, and prepared a plan, which, with the modifica- 
tions directed by the committee, was adopted by the board ; and 
in January, 1866, it was commenced by Messrs. Johnson & Ham- 
mer. The building was completed at a cost of from |60,000 to 
$t5,000. It is a splendid <»building, neatly and substantially con- 
structed, and is an ornament to the city and county. We are 
proud of it. Photographs of it can be had at J. Mueller's gallery. 

PUBLIC SCHOOLS. 

The interest taken in the education of the youth is the most 
conclusive evidence of the intelligence of the community where 
they may be established. Here we have the best of schools all 
will admit. It is admitted by all who visit our town that we have 
about the finest school buildings in the State for public schools. 
There is not another city in the West where the public seems to 
take the same interest in ail matters pertaining to the education 
and moral training of the children, that is evinced in Council 
Blulfs. There are at present five large public school houses; a 
very fine Young Ladies' Seminary, Rev. Mr. Little principal; be- 
sides many other select schools. We take pleasure in*stating that 
the German schools of this city are successsfully and satisfactorily 
carried on. 

The teachers' institute which met here last fall was was largely 
attended, and very interesting, there being a good report from all 
parts. It will meet again August 30th. 

There are some seventy district schools in the County. Of 
these, Council Bluff's has sixteen; Kane Township, eleven sub-dis- 
tricts and thirteen school houses ; Rockford, four school houses ; 
Crescent, eight; Boomer, seven; York, one; Knox, five; Center, 
five; James, three; Macedonia, two; Walnut Creek, three ; Silver 
Creek, three. 

The schools outside of the city, as well as those in the city, 
are well supplied with apparatus, maps, &c. The school houses

RAILROADS. 

The benefits which are derived from railroad communication 
are untold, and can hardly be realized, when we remember that 
civilization and improvements of all kinds follow the iron horse. 
They are an almighty power. Whatever they undertake to do, as 
companies or corporations, they always seem to accomplish. If 
it is the building of a town on any of their lines, they make all 
to serve their plans by the mighty influence they exert ; and, 
almost like magic, cities and towns spring up where they plant 
the standard. 



22 ^ COUNCIL BLUFFS DIRECTORY. 



Economy being essential to success in any enterprise, so rail- 
road companies look to their own interests in the location and 
building of towns and roads, &g. The bridge which is being 
built across the Missouri River by the Union Pacific Railroad 
Company, at a point decided by thetn, was a matter of import- 
ance to all the other roads which are centering here, as well as to 
them, to have it located with a view to dispatch of business, and 
also to have a safe and permanent foundation to build on. It was 
located only after thorough investigation, and that being opposite 
the general transfer grounds of all the roads, on section two, in 
the western limits of our city, two miles from the river, and, ere 
long, the trains will leave Council Bluffs, pass over the Missouri 
(leaving Omaha to the right, as a stopping point, or way station). 
Then all will understand that Council Blulfs is the terminus of 
the Union Pacific Railroad, and that all the other roads which 
are here, and are coming from the east, north and south, tap the 
above-named road at this point, the great railroad centre of the 
Northwest. It will be interesting to see the iron horse glide ma- 
jestically and triumphantly across the western plain, thus conduct- 
ing the pioneer to the far West, to plant the standard of civiliza- 
tion and enlightenment. 

NATURAL ADVANTAGES. 

The natural advantages of this point as a railroad center must 
not be overlooked, as it was not by the engineers when they had in- 
vestigated the same, which report has been generally received by 
all, and endorsed by the seven roads which center here, especially. 
We know we have the natural advantages of grounds for one 
grand union depot, where freights and merchandise will be sent 
to and I'rom all parts, not only of the United States, but will pass 
this way from all parts of the world, eventually, as this is a central 
point, equally distant from almost all the great cities. 

J^ut we will not forget llim who created all things for the 
h>est for these favors, to enable us to surpass our rival city, which, 
we think, misrepresented herself in the East, and to-day stands on 
a sandy foundation, built by wind and speculation, which is now, 
we are told, on the decline. Council Bluffs, on the other hand, 
with her many railroads, as so many arms, stretching all over the 
country, bringing thither the commerce of the world, is forming 
a mighty city by her tributaries, like the rivers which are tributary 
to and from the great ocean. W(; have then but to live in liopes

of seeing the Capital of our Nation removed to Council Bluffs, 
" The Great Railroad Center of the Northwest.." 

UNION PACIFIC. 

The Union Pacific Railroad is one of the greatest lines of 
road on the continent, and in can be said that no road will be 
traveled more, in a few years. It is now finished. Its terminus is 
Council Bluffs, Iowa. All the other roads — seven in number — tap 
the Union Pacific at this point, making all tributary to it. By the 
energy of its Chief Engineer, G. M. Dodge, it has been pushed 
west to completion. The company have been buying a large 
amount of lands in Council Bluffs, adjoining the general transfer 
grounds and elsewhere, amounting to over half a million dollars. 
Reader, does not this seem like business, and show that some day 
the initial point of the Union Pacific will be second to Chicago — 
yes, out-rival the same. Webster Snyder, Esq., is Superintendent 
of the road, and Hon. Oliver Ames, President. 

CHICAGO & NORTHWESTERN. 

This is one of the longest single lines of road in the country. 
Its terminus is Council Bluffs, where it connects with the Union 
Pacific Railroad. It is doing an extensive business, and has been 
since its completion. Long trains of freight cars are coming al- 
most constantly, and we can judge of the prosperity of the road 
by the amount of freight and merchandise which is now here to be 
transferred. It passes through the best part of the country. The 
towns which have been established by the company are permanent 
and flourishing. Missouri Valley, Dunlap, Montana, Marshall- 
town, Cedar Rapids, and Clinton, are the principal town on the 
Iowa Division. The company has a very fine freight and passen- 
ger depot and other necessary buildings, on Broadway, corner of 
Sycamore street. They own a large amount of lands, and are 
buying more adjoining. We are acquainted with the workings of 
this company ; and, as the ofiicers and men connected with the 
road are thorough business men, transacting an honorable busi- 
ness, there is nothing to hinder its success. William B. Strong, 
Council Bluffs, General Western Agent. 

COUNCIL BLUFFS & ST. JOSEPH. 

This road was finished the first day of August, a year ago. 
We can now go to St. Joseph in twelve hours. Judging by the 
energy which has been evinced in the past, this will certainly be a 



24 COUNCIL BLUFFS DIRECTORY. 



prosperous line. It is now competing with other roads. They are 
': doing a big business now. The company has a new passenger 
I depot building near the old one. This is Avell. Thanks, from the 
! people of this city, for this connnection with St. Josej)h and other 
' points South, to the company which has so rapidly built this road. 
From its present prospects, its past benefits to us, and the success 
it has had, the road must have success and prosperity in the fu- 
ture. As the company feels an interest in Council Bluffs, the ter- 
minus, and are doing all they can to build up our city; so we, as 
citizens, feel equally interested in the road that is to be the main 
arm from the South, which will help to make our city one of re- 
nown. W. H. Whitla, General Agent, Council Bluffs. 

COUNCIL BLUFFS & SIOUX CITY 

This road has been finished lately, and is doing a good busi- 
ness. It forms a junction at Missouri Valley with the Chicago 
& Northwestern railroad, and bids fair to be an important line. 
It has been built with dispatch, but well done. We see the im- 
portance of this line in the fact that the North and South are 
bound together, freights and merchandise passing by way of Coun- 
cil Bluffs. 

CHICAGO, ROCK ISLAND & PACIFIC. 

This road also connects with the Union Pacific here, as this 
is its terminus. It will compete with the other Eastern roads in 
the transportation of freights and merchandise. It is finished now. 
This, another great line across our State, terminating here, adds 
to our prosperity, evidently. Atlantic, Des Moines, Marengo, 
Grinnell, Iowa City and Davenport are the principal towns on the 
Iowa Division. The great growth, commerce, and trade of the 
West demand that this road should rank among the first in the 
land. S. S. Stevens, General Agent, Council Bluffs. 

BURLINGTON & MISSOURI RIVER. 

Tliis road is to be completed this fall to this point, which is 
its western terminus. It is another of those tributaries of the 
great Pacific Kailroad which the completion of the latter is hurry- 
ing forward. A large force is engaged upon tlie Avork. It is now 
comi)]ctcd to Afton, Iowa, and is expected to be finished and in 
running order this year at least, making another line from the 
MiHHiRHip})i to the Missouri, across the State of Iowa — the garden 
of the West.

AMERICAN CENTRAL. 

This line has been well considered by the principal railroad 
men, and noticed by the shipping and commercial tradesmen. It 
is certain that the enterprise is deemed fully accomplished. It 
will be an important route, as a thorough consolidation of certain 
roads from Fort Wayne, Indiana, eastward, and the Pittsburgh, 
Fort Wayne & Chicago and Pennsylvania Central ; but westward 
we have not yet learned whether a route has been established or 
not. Certain it is that the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne & Chicago 
and Pennsylvania Central are well able alone to build a track to 
Council Bluffs, which will be done. This will be an important 
road, when built. 

MUSCATINE, OSKALOOSA & COUNCIL BLUFFS. 

The above-named road is talked of, and a meeting of persons 
interested in its construction was held at Muscatine a short time 
since, for the election of a board of directors, for the year ensuing, 
and for the transaction of such other business as may come before 
them. There is no doubt but it will be built. 

GENERAL RESUME. 

The information just given we have gathered as best we could. 
Is not Council Bluffs a railroad center, and destined to become a 
great city? The following is a synopsis of the above-named roads : 
Railroads in running order, 5 ; now building and rapidly approach- 
ing, 2; eastern consolidation, 1 — 1; westward, the Union Pacific 
Railroad; eastward, the Chicago & Northwestern, Burlington & 
Missouri, Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific, and American Central 
Railroads ; north v/ard, the Council Bluffs & Sioux City Railroad ; 
southward, the Council Bluffs & St. Joseph Railroad. All of 
these roads have their termini at Council Bluffs, and within its cor- 
porate limits. 

UNION PACIFIC BRIDGE. 

The bridge will be of iron, on the plan of Lost's patent inflexi- 
ble truss, 70 feet above water surface, resting on iron cylinders 
8^ feet in diameter, sunk by the pneumatic process to the solid 
rock at a depth of from 10 to 80 feet below water surface, and 
filled with solid masonry from bottom to top. The spans are 250 
feet each, and the total length of the bridge proper 2750 feet. The 
bridge was designed by Gen. G. M. Dodge, Chief Engineer of the 

i Union Pacific Railroad, and is built by L. B. Boomer & Co. of

COUNCIL BLUFFS DIEECTOET. 



Chicago, under the direction of Gen. Wm. Sooy Smith, their 
Chief Engineer, and under the superintendence of T. E. Sickels, 
Chief Engineer of the bridge, in behalf of the Union Pacific 
Railroad Company. 

This stupendous structure is one of the greatest triumphs of 
of successful bridge building in America. The design is a mas- 
terly exhibition of architectural skill, and unites strength and 
solidity with grace and beauty. It will be an honor to the Union 
Pacific Railroad, as well as to the twin cities which it unites. Its 
estimated cost is two and a half million dollars. 

NEWSPAPERS AND PRINTING OFFICES. 

The first paper that was printed in Council Blufis was the 
Frontier Guardian^ started in 1848, by O. Hyde. The Bugle 
was the next paper started, which was in 1850, by Babbitt & Car- 
penter. Next came the Chronotype. It started in 1854, W. W. 
Maynard editor. The Nonpareil started in 1856, edited by May- 
nard & Long. The Democratic Clarion started in 1850, edited by 
T. P. Bentley. The Ti7nes started in 185 9, edited by J. E. John- 
son. The G^ermari- -Press, edited by Wen borne & Co., started in 
1867. The Cou7icil jBluffs Democrat, edited by Alf. S. Kierolf <fc 
Co., started in 1868. The Comicil Bluffs Post was started the 
present year, by L. Mader, editor and proprietor. 

The statement of the above named papers is enough to show 
the reader that many minds have been directed to Council Bluff's 
for many years, and that they thought it would be a place of im- 
portance some day. And to-day \\v see that it is an important 
point — the Great Railroad Center of the Northwest. 

The papers that are here to-day are heralding its present pros- 
perity and future greatness. 

The Daily and Weekly Nonpareil is published by Gray, Mill 
& Schermerhorn, who are live men, and are doing what they can 
to inform the people, far and near, as to the place (Council Bluffs) 
and attract those seeking homes and business loca*;ions. 

The Evening Bugle (l^abbitt & Son proprietors and editors) 
is likewise laboring in the same direction. 

The Council Bluffs Post (L. Mader editor and proprietor), a 
(Trerman paper started this year, is a very line sluiet. It has a good 
circulation, and is doing what it can to help build up our (^ity.

THE LANDS ADJOINING. 

The lands adjoining Council Blufffs are unsurpassed by any 
prairie farming lands in the Northwest, and the lands along the 
different roads leading into this place by any in the world. The 
soil is fertile, and of remarkable depth. We venture to assert 
that no country on the face of the globe presents such varied and 
permanent attractions to the hnsbandman as the vast prairies and 
fertile valleys of Western Iowa, which offers homes to millions, at 
prices which, a year or two hence, may, and possibly will, be in- 
creased from five to twenty-fold. Hence, Council Bluffs is now, 
as It has long been, the depot of supplies for the cities west of it, 
less favored by nature. Vast trains daily pass over the Missouri 
from Council Bluffs, laden with the produce upon which depend 
near and remote communities westward on the line of the Pacific 
emigration. There is, therefore, a ready sale in the west for all 
the food which Western Iowa can bring into the market, at prices 
double and triple the prices ruling in the eastern cities and southern 
markets, being unaffected by eastern grain fluctuations. These 
lands are now also within the grasp of the farmer of small means 
and great thrift, and, simply as a matter of investment, are worthy 
of his most serious consideration. 

Then, let it be known that such are the facts, and wise men 
will turn this way. May the many who are coming west stop at 
Council Bluffs. Yes, start for this place at first. Don't pass any 
other way than by way of Council Bluff's, that the garden of the 
world — the future metropolis of the Northwest — may be improved 
soon.

STATE DEAF AND DUMB ASYLUM. 

After much opposition and contention, this Institution for the 
benefit of that unfortunate portion of the people our State, has 
been located at Council Bluffs, and an appropriation made for the 
erection of suitable buildings. The building is now being rapidly 
built. About fifty men arc employed. 

The Iowa institution for the deaf and dumb is at present 
located at Iowa City, though it is contemplated that it will be re- 
moved to Council Bluffs in October, 1870, at which point perma- 
nent buildings are in process of erection. During the last two years 
the institution has had a total attendance of ninety-eight, with an 



COUNCIL BLUFFS DIEECTOBY. 31 



average attendance of about sixty-five or seventy. The institution 
is under the superintendence of Professor Benjamin Talbot, a man 
every way fitted for the responsible position he so ably fills. The 
census of 1867 gives the total number of deaf mutes in the State 
at three hundred and sixty-eight, which is probably below the real 
number. All between the ages of ten and twenty-five years, of a 
sound mind, are entitled to seven years gratuitous instruction and hoard 
in the institution ; and the General Assembly, at its recent session, 
made provision for the assistance of such as are debarred from at- 
tending on account of inability to provide proper clothing. We 
believe there are many in the State who ought to be receiving a 
course of instruction in the Institution, but who are ignorant of 
the facilities so generously provided for their relief. Persons who 
are cognizant of such cases would confer a real benefit upon the 
cause of humanity by sending the name and residence of any such 
person to the Principal of the Institution, who will then endeavor 
to secure attendance. We especially appeal to County Superin- 
tendents and teachers to interest themselves in^behalf of these un- 
fortunates. — loLva InstrucLor, 

CHURCHES. 

The Congregational Church of Council Bluffs was organized 
June 12, 1863. The found-Btions of their present church edifice 
were laid August 9, 1854, and in a few months the building was so 
far advanced as to be used fur public worship. July 6, 1856, the 
edifice being fully completed, was formally dedicated. The church 
was without regular preaching from 1857 to 1860, and in conse- 
quence, became much weakened ; but by the able and efficient 
ministry of Rev. Jas. B. Chase, Jr., is in a prosperous condidion ; 
and, the cengregation having outgrown their present house of 
worship, the society contemplate building a new one at an eai-ly 
day. Rev. H. P. Roberts, Pastor. 

First Baptist Church, Rev. T. F. Thickston, Pastor. They 
have a fine new church, situated on William street, west of Marcy. 
Services at 10:30 a. m., and 7:30 p. m. Sabbath school meets at 
12 o'clock. Pastor, Superintendent. 

St. Paul's Protestant Episcopal Church parish was organized 
in April, 1856. The place of worship is on Pearl street, and was 
erected in the spring of 1863, at a cost of $1,300. The chur3h 
building was enlarged in the summer of 1867, at a cost of $3,200.

It will accommodate 230 worsMppers. Services every Sunday, at 
10^ o'clock A. M. and 1^ o'clock p. m. Sunday school at 9 o'clock 
A. M. Rector, Rev. John Chamberlain. 

The Roman Catholic Church is situated on Main street, south 
of Broadway; Rey. John Doxachre, pastor. They have a nice, 
large church, and have lately built a very fine parsonage. 

German Lutheran Church, Upper Broadway. They have no 
regular pastor, but the society is in a flourishing condidion. 

The Methodist Episcopal Church was organized in 1860, by 
Rev. Wm. Simpson, who came a year or two before, as a mission- 
ary, under trying circumstances, as he first came in pursuit of 
some thieves. He soon had such an influence for good, that he 
calledthe people together, and formed a little church. The diffi- 
culties which had to be surmounted at that date in trying to plant 
the standard of Christianity were experienced by Bro. Simpson. 
The Mormons were among the opposers. At one time a Mormon 
elder, by the name of Hyde, professed to have had a revelation to 
the elfect that Bro. Simpson would not live very long, and com- 
municated the same to his religious opponent, by letter, over his 
signature. Bro. Simpson returned the compliment by saying that, 
if he was injured in any way, in consequence of the curse which 
had been pronounced against him, the Elder himself would beheld 
responsible. It is enough to say that the curse was removed as 
publicly as it had been announced; and thus the way was paved 
for the successful establishment of the church. They have now a 
very fine church edifice, built some two years since, under Rev. J. 
Knotts. It was completed this year, under the labors of Rev. C. 
Mabee, and dedicated by J)r. Eddy, of Chicago. The entire cost 
of the church was about $23,000. It is built of brick, and is situ- 
ated on Upper Broadway. Tliey have a very good Sunday school, 
the attendants of which number two hundred and upwards. The 
scliool meets at 2 p. m. D. A. Sovereign, Superintendent. The 
society is in a prosperous condition at present, under the care and 
guidance of Rev. C. C. Mal)cc, Pastor. 

The First Presbyterian (yinirch, corner of Marcy and Willow 
8trc(!t8, Rev. T. A. Clehuid pastor, is a good building, 60x30, with 
a fine l)(K'ry. Its music reaches the car on the calm Sabbath 
morning, rciininding us of day of devotion to our creator. This 
cliurcli was oigani/ed October 12, 1856, with thirteen members. 
It now numbers 150, jind has a Sabbath school of 250. The time

of service is 11 a. m. and 7^ p. m.; Sunday school at 9 a. m. They 
have a fine Sunday school, under the care of J. B. Rue, Superin- 
tendent. 

The United Brethren Church is located corner of Marcy and 
Pine streets, one street west of the Council Bluffs Iron Works, 
and was dedicated June 25, 1868. We understand that they 
have a good Sunday school in the afternoon, and preaching at the 
usual hours, morning and evening. Hey. W. H. W. Reace, pastor. 

The Latter Day Saints have lately dedicated a new church on 
Pierce street. Elder James Caffel officiates. Services every Sab-

bath, at 10:40 A. m. and 8 p. m., in Bloom's Hall. Rev. E. Fitzger- 
ald, pastor. 

RELIGIOUS SOCIETIES. 

The state of society at present is good, as good, at least, as 
one could expect in a city where there has been such an increase 
of population as in Council Bluffs during the past year. During 
the past winter all the churches had a good many join them. Each 
made an extra effort to spread the cause of Christ, it is true ; but 
there seemed to be a turning to God. There is a good interest 
manifested to-day for the rebuilding up of the cause of Christianity. 
We not only see the fruits of past labors, but an earnest Christian 
spirit on the part of all to advance the common cause of our Lord 
and Master, as evinced by the unity of action in the union meetings 
we have had. The churches have religious meetings, such as 
prayer and conference meetings ; meetings of a social character, 
called church sociables. But the Union Sunday school meetings, 
we think, are not to be overlooked by any means. They are doing 
much good as we already see. Under the present state of facts, 
as heretofore mentioned, are we not justified in saying that the 
state of society at present is good ? May the agencies which are 
now employed still continue to act, until we shall see many more 
— yes, all — confess Christ, from the least unto the greatest, before 
that great and notable day of the Lord comes, when " the lion and 
the lamb shall lie down together, and a little child shall lead them."

YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

The Young Men's Christian Association was organized Sept. 
1st, 1867, with about fifteen members. The present officers are as 
follows : Rev. George L. Little, President : W. J. Midler and J. 
B. Rue, Vice Presidents ; Nathan P. Dodge, Treasurer ; Richard 
Gray, Recording Secretary; F. B. Hart, Corresponding Secretary;

Brethren Church. The members now number about eighty. The 
association has not been organized a very long time for a city as | 
large and as old, and whose citizens are as much interested in the 
spiritual welfare of the people as those of Council Blulfs. It is in 
a prosperous condition now, and we are glad to say that many of 
our young men are becoming more and more interested in what is j 
not only for their personal good, but mutually beneficial to us all. | 
We copy a portion of the circular issued by the association : "Free I 
reading rooms, well supplied with newspapers and other periodi- | 
cals,'^also, a library, have been opened over Townsend & Chap- | 
man's store, entrance on Pearl street. All citizens and strangers I 
are cordially invited to make these rooms their place of resort. |

with them. The lodges are interesting, and an invitation is ex- j 

tended to any and all who wish to cast their influence for temper- |

CASS COUNTY, IOWA. 



A Brief Historical Account of the Settlement and Organization of the 
County and its two Principal Towns, Lewis and Atlantic, 
with a List of the Leading Business Firms. 



Cass County was first settled by the Mormons. It was organ- 
ized in 185S, by the organizing sheriff, Mr. Wm. S. Townsend. It 
is 24 by 36 miles square, is in the third tier of counties from the 
southern line of the State, and the second county from the Mis- 
souri River, or western border. It was named for Gov. Lewis 
Cass. The county has upwards of two thousand inhabitants. The 
principal towns are Atlantic and Lewis. They are both pleasant 
places, with a most beautiful country surrounding them. The 
country surrounding each of these towns may be styled the garden 
of the State ; it has beautiful streams of water running through 
different i)arts. The principal streams are East and West Nish- 
uabotna (abbreviated by the citizens to " Botna.") The signifi- 
eation of the name Nish-na-bot-na, as applied to two of the impor- 
tant streams of the western part of this our noblest State, is 
" crossed by a boat." There are splendid bodies of timber along 
the rivers and streams throughout the county.

LEWIS. 

Lewis, the county seat, was located on the llth day of March, 
18S3,by the locating commissioners, Thomas G. Palmer and Mil- 
ton Richards, neither of whom now live in the county. The name 
was given in honor of the same person for whom the county was 
named. Gen. or Gov. Lewis Cass was early identified with the 
government of the Northwestern Territory, having been its Gov- 
ernor — afterwards for many years, Secretary of War of the United 
States, and for the latter half of his long life was a citizen of De- 
troit, Mich. The name was more worthily bestowed than those 
to many of the couuties in the State. There is 160 acres in the 
town plat. 

The town of Lewis was laid out in February, A. D. 1864, by 
David Chapman, surveyor. Among the first settlers were Daniel 
Stanley, Charles Woodward, S. H. Meyers and S. M. Tucker. The 
first house was built by S. M. Tucker. The first child born in the 
town was Geo. D. Tucker. The Methodist was the first church 
organized, and is now flourishing, having the largest society. The 
Good Templars and Masons each have an organization. 

Churches. 

I Lewis is a religious town, I have reason to believe, as I found 
I no saloons, and many churches and societies that speak well for 
any town. The Methodist Episcopal Church is located in a pleas- 
ant part of the town, on the corner of Main and First Streets. 
They have the largest congregation of any church in town. Rev. 
H. C. Newell, pastor. The Congregational Church is centrally 
j situated, on tlie corner of Court and First Streets. They have a 
good Coni^rogation, but no regular pastor as yet. The Baptist 
Church is on Main, between Fourth and Fifth streets. It lias a fine 
location commanding a view of the surrounding country. Although 
they have no regular pawtor, they have a good congregation, and, 
with the Congregational ists, expect their new pastor soon. There 
I is also a society of Second Adventists. \ understand there are 
i very good Sunday Schools in all the churches. This speaks well

for Lewis. It is certainly a very pleasant town, the location is fine 
and the society being good makes it a desirable place to live in. 
Public Buildingi. 
Court House, two story, frame ; Treasury Building, cut stone ; 
School House, two story brick building, cost $12,000; it is attended 
well, and has been well conducted. The town may well be proud 
of it. Also four good church buildings.

ATLANTIC. 

The town of Atlantic is situated on the Chicago, Rock Island 
and Pacific Railroad, about 56 miles east of Council Bluffs, and 
82 miles west of Des Moines, on the east side of the East Botna 
River, and is the principal town between Des Moines and Council 
Bluffs. 

The town plat embraces about one square mile, or 640 acres, 
the business portion being situated on a gentle rolling second bot^ 
tom in the valley. The southern portion of the town rises upon 
the higher prairie slopes, embracing beautiful sites for residences. 
From these eminences are fine views of the surrounding country, 
with its diversity of valley and upland prairie, groves and streams ; 
and to these the hand of thrift has added, and is adding, new em- 
bellishments, by the opening of farms, the building of a highway 
for the nations, and the founding of a city here. 

On the I5th of September last, the railroad company estab- 
lished their depot here, and a survey of the town was made imme- 
diately after. The railroad line passes along the north side, all the 
town being south of the track, except 66 lots designed for ware- 
houses, lumber yards, &c. The passenger depot is located near 
the head of Chestnut street (which is at this time the main business 
street), and opposite what is called " Hotel Block." The engine 
house and turn-table are at the northeast end of the town. The 
railroad company has reserved ample grounds for freight houses, 
side tracks, &g. 

The blocks are of uniform size, being 300 feet square, with 
streets crossing each other at right angles. Chestnut, which is 
the main street, and runs north from the depot, is 100 feet wide, 
and all the others, running parallel therewith are 80 feet wide 
each. The east and west streets are all 66 feet wide. All the 



152 



COUNCIL BLUFFS DIRECTORY, 



blocks are divided by an alley 20 feet wide, running north and 
south. About 600 business lots are laid out m that portion of the 
town most convenient to the depot. These are each 25 feet 
front by 140 deep. All other lots are 50 by 140 feet each. One 
block, in the central portion of the town, on Chestnut street is re- 
served for a public square. The north and south streets are Laurel, 
Hicl^ory, Birch, Cedar, Locust, Poplar, Chestnut, Walnut, Elm, 
Maple, Linn, Oak, and Hazel, while those running east and west 
are numbered progressively from First to Tenth. 

Business lots are sold at from |100 to $300; residence lots 
from $75 to $100. About $10,000 worth of lots have already been 
sold, and there is still a brisk demand, lots being sold almost every 
day. Choice unimproved farming lands in the vicinity can be 
bought at from $10 to $15 per acre ; and from five to seven miles 
distant at $5 per acre. 

. Some idea can be formed of the amount of business done in 
Cass County, from the fact that during the month of march, 1869, 
there was received per railroad at Atlantic station 1,832,585 lbs. 
— or almost 1,000 tons — freight; the cash receipts being very 
near $8,000. For the same month there was forwarded east from 
here 146,8*75 lbs. freight. We call this pretty fair business for a 
little " burg " only about five months old. 

The business of the town is much greater now, and it is build- 
ing up very rapidly. Grove City is almost all moved over to this 
point, and the people at Lewis are looking with a jealous eye; they 
are a little afraid they will lose their county seat, for the live peo- 
ple of Atlantic have ofiered to erect suitable county buildings 
without any expense to the county for five years, if they will make 
it tlie county seat by a, vote ihis fall. The people seem to be 
pretty confident that it will be settled on by a vote in favor of At- 
lantic. 

The same energy which has pushed forward and completed 
the Chicago, llock Island and Pacific Railroad seems to have 
been infused into the people of Atlantic, and we venture the asser- 
tion that no town throughout the broad State of Iowa can present 
a record of more substantial nnd rapid growth than Atlantic. We 
cannot help looking upon the young and prosperous town with 
feelings of pride and satisfaction. 

nUKlNESS AND JiUILDlNG. 

They have at j>resent a good number of business houses, which 



r 



COUNCIL BLUFFS DIRECTORY. 



153 



are doing a good trade. That which speaks most in favor of the 
place in this respect is, that it has a fine agricultural country all 
around it, which is being settled up fast. B. W. South wick erected 
the first store house ; C. B. Bennett & Co. built the first hotel, 
which was about the first building, called Atlantic House ; Henry 
Miller, Esq., has the honor of erecting the first house in Atlantic, 
and Mrs. Miller that of cooking the first meal of victuals that was 
eaten in the town. The school building is located on Chestnut 
street on the corner opposite the public square. It is a room 20x 
40, in which the town school is now conducted by the popular Su- 
perintendent of Cass County, H. F. Smith, Esq., whose school I 
visited while in session, and found the house crowed to its utmost 
capacity with sparkling faces. But I was somewhat surprised to 
see them so quiet in a house so crowded, and yet so much engaged 
in study. All seemed to go on like clock work. It speaks well for 
Atlantic to see such an interesting school. The county at large 
has some 40 school districts. I understand they are going to 
work to erect large and commodious school buildings. This 
speaks well for the enterprise of Atlantic. 

CHURCHES AND SOCIETIES.. 

The people of Atlantic are laying the foundation of good so- 
ciety by their efibrts to erect suitable builings of worship. 

The M. E. Church is situated upon a beautiful eminence on 
Poplar street, one of the most desirable locations in town. Rev. 
Abraham is the pastor. 

The Congregational Church is located on Fifth street, near 
' the corner of Chestnut; it has the most central location of any of 
the churches. Presided over by Rev. Hill. 

The Baptist Church is located on Locust street, in a most ex- 
cellent locality, giving a fine view of the railroad. Presided over 
by the Rev. Mr. Baird. 

The orders of Good Templars and Odd Fellows are making ar- 
! rangements to organize. The people of Atlantic seem to be alive 
I to every good work. Success will attend them. 

NEWSPAPER. 

The Messenger, edited and published by H. Clay Johnson, 
Esq., is one of the permanent and creditable institutions of Atlantic. 
It is devoted, heart and soul, to the material interests of that part 
of Western Iowa, and it is energetically working to build up the 
town, and promote the settlement of the contiguous territory.

MILLS COUNTY, IOWA, 



A Brief Historical Account of the Settlement and Organization of the 
County and its Principal Towns, with a List of the 
Leading Business Firms of Glenwood. 



Tlie county of Mills was so named in memory of Frederick 
Mills, a brave young officer of Burlington, Iowa, who was killed 
in one of the battles of the Mexican war, which excited general 
remark in the newspapers of the State, and hence, when a new 
county was to be organized, the tragic story of the young officer 
suggested a name, and, as is remarked by a writer, the name of 
Frederick Mills will be remembered when monuments of marble 
have yielded to the ravages of time. Yes, the memory of the 
brave will live forever. 

This county was originally included in Pottawattamie County. 
The territorial limits are the same as the smallest counties in the 
State, comprising 440 square miles. The general surface of the 
county — excepting the Missouri River bottom, which is about six 
miles wide, and consequently comprises about one fourth of her 
territory — js high, rolling prairie, yet there is but a small portion 
of the land too rough or hilly to be unfit or even undesirable for 
cultivation. The soil of the county, is good, and is composed of 
a light sandy loam. Timber is more plenty in the western part of 
the county than any other. Fruits of different varieties, such as 
apples, pears, cherries, grapes, and the smaller fruits of the hardiest 
kinds flourish well. I have seen a number of fine apple orchards, 
mostly in the vicinity of Glenwood. The county of Mills can 
boast of being a rich agricultural county. It has many of the 
natural advantages that tend to make it attractive to those seeking 
homes.

I GLENWOOD. 

I Glenwood is situated in latitnde 51 deg., longitude 95 deg. 

I 36 min.,west; is 251 miles west of the Mississippi Kiver, 6 miles 
j east of the Missouri, and 20 miles south of Council Bluffs, and is 
I in the second tier of counties north of the Missouri State line, 
i No town in Iowa is more delightfully located. Beautiful 
groves and wooded hills surround it on every side, and furnish 
splendid sites for residences, while the profusion of shade trees and 
shrubbery in all parts of the city furnishes a pleasing contrast 
with the prairie towns. The present population is estimated at 
2,000, having nearly doubled within the last year. At the Novem- 
ber election it cast 341 votes. It is the capital of Mills County, 
and has a fine brick court house, well supplied with fire-proof 
vaults, &G. The building was erected in 1857. We also have a 
good, substantial brick jail, erected last year. The latter, we are 
happy to say, is seldom occupied. There are many elegant and 
costly residences and business houses in the place, and hundreds 
will be built the coming season. Among the many attractions of 
of Glenwood is a branch of the 

Iowa Soldiers' Orphans' Home. 
This is one of the three Soldiers' Orphans' Homes now under 
the patronage of the state, and managed by a board of trustees 
elected by the Legislature. The Home is situated upon a com- 
manding eminence adjoining the city on the northeast, and has a 
large and tasteful brick edifice just completed. A splendid view 
of the city and surrounding country may be had from this point. 
There are fifty-six orphans now at the Home, and many more 
will probably soon be added. They are clothed, fed, and educated 
at public expene. Another important feature of the place is its 
splendid 

Schools. 

Of these they have a number, and all fiirst class. The public 
schools are at present in four departments, and occupy one of the

COUNCIL BLUFFS DIRECTOET. 



Itailroads. 

The line of the Council Bluffs & St. Joe Road runs 2^ miles 
west of this point, and passengers are conveyed to and from the 
depot by the Western Stage Company's coaches, which also make 
daily ti-ips to Ked Oak Junction and intermediate points. The 
Burlington and Missouri River Railroad ig rapidly nearing us, and 
i« expected to be completed to this point without fail by Septem- 
ber next at farthest. Grading is progressing rapidly between thi* 
place and Alton, the present terminus, and no pains will be spared 
to hurry it through. The advantages to accrue to this city from 
direct communication, by rail, with the East and West, can be 
seen at a glance, and it needs no prophet to foretell its future 
prosperity. 

A splendid opening is presented here for the establishment of 
manufacturing enterprises. The country is new and but scantily 
supplied with factories of any kind, while, in consequence of the 
immense immigration, the demand for all kinds of wares is rapidly 
increasing. Woolen factories, iron foundries, agricultural imple- 
ment factories, machine shops, paper mills, in fact nearly every 
kind of factory is needed here, and will prove fortunate invest- 
ments to those who will make the venture. Surrounded as we are 
by the best agricultural country on the globe, and with a steady 
stream of immigration pouring into the county, what can Glen- 
wood eventually be but a place of importance, both in manufac- 
tures and commerce. 

Finally, we would say to all who wish to locate in one of the 
most pleasant, enterprising and go aheaditive places under the 
canopy of heaven, go to Glenwood. The climate is delightful and 
the society unexceptionable. The citizens are ever ready to extend 
the hand of welcome to all honest, industrious home seekers. 
Property is cheap, and there is nothing to prevent your happiness 
and prosperity. 

PACIFIC CITY. 

This town is two and a half miles from Glenwood, on the St. 
Joe and Council ]>luffs Railroad, eighteen miles south of Council 
Bluffs, and at the junction of the St. Joe and Council Bluffs, and 
Burlington and Missouri River Railroads. It is a small place 
now, but when the Burlington and Missouri River Railroad is 
completed to that point it will become (piite a town.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, IOWA. 



A Brief Historical Account of the Settlement and Organization of the 
County and its Principal Towns, with a List of the Lead- 
ing Business Firms of Red Oak Junction. 



Montgomery County was organized in 1853. Hon. A. G. 
Lowe was the first judge. The first settlers were John Stafford, 
John Ross, James Ross, and Aaron Vice. The surface of the 
county is undulating, and, says a writer, " the fertility of the bot- 
tom lands is equal to the lands on the Miami, the Danube or the 
Mle." The county is well drained by the Middle and West Nod- 
away, Yarkio, and East Mshnabotna Rivers, and Walnut and 
Indian Creeks, leaving high lands between them ranging north 
and south with the streams, some of them as level as the bottom 
lands and some of them rolling, with a depth of soil unsurpassed 
on all of them. Oak, walnut and cottonwood are the principal kinds 
of timber. Coal is found in the eastern part of the county, and 
there are indications of it in other parts. Stone quarries have 
been opened in many parts of the county. The streams are of 
a character which afford good mill sites, and there is an abund- 
ance of water power on most of the streams in the county. There 
are five or six mills running already. It is settling up very fast, 
especially on the bottom lands and around Red^ak Junction, 
which is the best place to settle in.

RED OAK JUNCTION. 

It has been but a few years since the county seat was located 
here ; it was changed from Frankfort to Red Oak Junction by a 
vote of the people of the county, after having quite a contest for 
it. Since it has been changed the town of Red Oak Junction has 
gone ahead steadily. It is building up very rapidly at present, as 
the people expect the Burlington and Missouri River Railroad to 
be running there soon. It is graded now. This will then be the 
principal town for some distance either east or west on the road. 
The town is located on the east side of the East Mshnabotna 
River. The location is a fine one, being near the river and on 
high and dry ground, partly on a rise which commands a view of 
the surrounding country. A great many people are settling there, 
the population having been doubled during the last year, and it 
will continue to increase just as rapidly in the future, as they ex- 
pect to be greatly benefited by the Burlington and Missouri River 
Railroad, and besides this there is a road surveyed north and 
south forming a junction at Red Oak, the people of which are 
ready to do all they can to have it completed, as it will pass 
through one of the richest valleys in the State. They are alive in 
reference to their railroads, as well as every other enterprise that 
will tend to build up the town. [See a list of business and busi-

/Schools. 

The schools of the city are good ; they have a high school, 
which is well conducted and well attended. I learned that they

HARRISON COUNTY, IOWA. 



A Brief Historical Account of the Settlement and Organization of the 
County and its Principal Towns, with a List of the Lead- 
ing Business Firms of Magnolia, Missouri 
Valley, Dunlap, and Logan. 



Harrison County was organized in 1853. The general surface 
of the county is level. The bottom lands along the Missouri and 
Boyer Rivers are considered extremely good for farming purposes. 
The table lands are generally rolling prairie, with some timber. 
The timber is principally oak, black walnut, linn, elm, hickory> 
ash, and cottonwood. 

The county is vvell watered by streams that run the year 
round, which afford splendid water power, and many saw and 
grist mills are running in different parts. Harrison County is a 
rich agricultural county, and has all the natural advantages that 
tend to make it a wealthy county. It is settling up very fast. 
There are more towns in this than in any other county adjoining 
Pottawottamie. 

MAGNOLIA, 

The county seat, is situated in the central part of the county, nine 
! miles from the Missouri River, and six miles from Logan, on the 
Chicago and Northwestern Railway. It is visited now by way of 
Logan, and on stepping off the train at that place you will find 
Mr. Brainard's passenger, express, and mail line ready to convey 
all to and from Magnolia, making connections with the express 
trains. The town of Magnolia has a fine location, with a beauti- 
ful farming country surrounding it. It is a very pleasant place 
to live in, and very healthy, and has good churches and schools.

Churches and Schools. 

The first church organized there was the Methodist Episcopal, 
in the fall of 1854, and the next was the Congregationalist, in 
April, 1855. There is also a Catholic church, a Christian church, 
and an Evangelical (German) church. Magnolia is noted for be- 
ing a place of churches, and as being a good religious town. 

The first school house was built during the year 1858, although 
they have had good schools from the first. 

Public Buildings. 

They have pretty good public buildings and many fine resi- 
dences. 

Business and Business Men. 
The people of Magnolia are alive to the interests of the town 
and country." Although they are back from the railroads, they are 
so favored with a fine, rich country surrounding them, that they 
are improving rapidly. The business of the town is pretty good, 
and they have a live set of business men.

MISSOURI VALLEY. 

Missouri Valley is about six miles back from the Missouri 
River, and is beautifully situated at the foot of the bluffs, one mile 
from the Boyer River, and is at the junction of the C. & N. W. 
R. R, and U. P. & S. C. R. R. It is the largest town in the county, 
and is rapidly improving. Many are turning their attention that 
way, as the railroad companies are making it an important point. 
They are making many improvements. 

The country about Missouri Valley can't be beat in the West. 
The timber is good ; the streams, with the exception of the Boyer, 
are clear water, and abound with numerous springs. , The princi- 
pal spting is about half a mile northwest of the town, on the farm 
of L. S. Snyder. The surrounding country is being settled up 
very fast, especially along the valleys of the Missouri and the 
Boyer. 

Business and Business Men. 
The business men are alive to the interests of the town. 
They say they mean to have the county seat there soon. The 
other towns in the county are somewhat jealous of Missouri Val- 
ley, and well they may be, when they see the enterprise of her 
business men and citizens. We give a list of the psincipal busi- 
ness houses.

DUNLAP. 

Dunlap is a new town on the Chicago and Northwestern Rail- 
road, nine miles east of Woodbine, where the company has put up 
all the shops they had contemplated putting up at Woodbine when 
the road was finished to that point. This was what made Dunlap 
a death-blow to Woodbine. Since that time the town has gone 
ahead like magic. The company put up a very large eating house 
and hotel, now occupied by Mr. Crow, and also a large round- 
house, built of brick. 

The location of the town is very good, it being built on the 
south side of the road, on high ground, which commands the sur- 
rounding country. The town is well laid out, and although it is 
building up fa.^t, property is sold at reasonable prices.

WOODBINE. 

The town of Woodbine was laid out on the prairie, in 18*i5. 
There is a good farming country around the place, which is attract- 
ing many farmers. 

Previous to 1867 Woodbine was the termini of the divisions 
of the railroad, but in the summer of that year this advantage was 
transferred to Dunlap, which made Dunlap, but was a heavy blow 
to Woodbine Being surrounded, however, by such a fine farii'lng 
country the town will live still. The surrounding country is being 
rapidly settled by a class of enterprising farmers. It is called the 
farmers' town, and will always be well supported by them.

SHELBY COUNTY, IOWA. 



A Brief Historical Account of the Settlement and Organization of the 
County and its Principal Towns, Harlan and Avoca, 



Shelby County was organized in 1853. It is a county that is 
not very thickly settled yet, but it is a splendid farming country. 
It is mostly prairie, which is high and rolling, and has also a fair 
proportion of good timber in the central and southern parts, along 
the streams, but the northern part has little, except about fifteen 
square miles of good timber in, the northwest part of the county. 
As the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad, now passes 
through the county, it is settling up fast. New towns are spring- 
ing up, and there is no doubt but what it will be a rich county 
some day.

HARLAIir. 

Harlan, a town in the center of the county, is the county-seat 
of Shelby County, and is located on the west bank of the "West 
Botna River, twelve miles from Avoca Depot, on the Chicago, 
Rock Island and Pacific Railroad. 

There are two churches in the town — Baptist and Methodist. 

There is also in the place a fine large grist mill. 

Messrs Yinton & Davis are the principal merchants of the 
place, and they are doing a very fine business. 

AVOCA. 

Avoca is a new town located on the Chicago, Rock Island and 
Pacific Railroad, and is springing up very rapidly. There is a 
good farming country around that is being settled up fast. It will 
be a good town some day.

TABOR, FREMONT CO., IOWA. 



A Description of the Town and its Surroundings, a List of the Leading 
Business Firms, and a Description of its Principal 
Institution of Learning, Tabor College. 



This town is situated eight miles east of Bartlett (a town on 
the St. Joe and Council Bluffs Railroad) twelve miles north of Sid- 
ney, the county-seat of Fremont county, twelve miles south of 
Glenwood, the county-seat of Mills County, and thirty miles south 
of Council Bluffs. It is near the line of Mills County, and used 
to be partly in Mills, before it was incorporated. The village 
numbers about 500 inhabitants. The early settlers were almost 
all from Eastern Ohio, on the Western Reserve — I need only say 
this in order to speak well of the class of people that make up the 
society. They laid out the town similar to the towns on the Re- 
serve, in Ohio. 

The location of the town is very beautiful, having a fine view 
of the surrounding country for miles. Good and well improved 
farms can be seen in every direction. The surrounding country, 
as well as the town, is settling up fast, with the best of people. 

There is very little attraction in Tabor for those who make 
their living by keeping saloon, and other such business, as there 
is nothing of the kind in the place. 

The town is liked by all who visit it, not only on account of 
its pleasant and healthy location, but also from the class of people 
who make up the community. 

I can but speak of the religious influence of the place, and its 
comparative freedom from the many temptations to which very

many other towns are subject. It is a place especially and favora- 
bly calculated for the training of the young. Almost all belong 
to the church, there being three churches in the town — ^Congrega- 
tional, Methodist, and Baptist — and they especially enjoy the in- 
fluence and teachings of the professors and teachers of the college, 
all of whom seem to labor zealously for that object. I have vis- 
ited the the place several times, and have been well pleased with 
my visits to the school. 

The college is an institution of which the village of Tabor 
may well be proud. They have lately pui up a very fine, large, 
brick boarding house, four stories high, with a basement. It will 
soon be ready for opening. 

Business and Business Men. 

The business of the town is very good, for a place of its size, 
as it has a fine, rich agricultural country surrounding it. Among 
the business men we find the following : 

M. L. Carpenter, dealer in dry goods, clothing, boots and 
shoes, groceries, general merchandise, and agricultural imple- 
ments. 

E. S. Hill, dry goods, groceries, books and stationery — the 
book store of the place. 

D. B. Specs & Co, clothing, gents furnishing goods, hats and 
caps, boots and shoes. 

F. Bosworth, wholsale dealer in all kinds of woolen goods and 
cassimeres. 

H. S. West, fruits and confectionery, and dealer in all kinds 
of stationery. (Mr. West is the Postmaster.) 
A. K. Townsend, harness maker and saddler. 
J. F. Saborn, meat market. 
Dalton & Clark, dry goods, groceries, &c. 
Mr. Gleason, dealer in stoves and tinware. 
C. Kernish, wagon and blacksmith shop, 

G. W. Gaston, flouring mill. 

Mr. McCormick, real estate and insurance agent, and dealer 
in agricultural implements. 

J. N. Churchill, dealer in and general agent for all kinds of 
agricultural implements. 

Geo Douglass, stock dealer. 

Mr. Adams, cabinet maker and undertaker. 

Kellogg & Son, carpenters and builders.

Miss M. L. Todd, music teacher. 
Mrs. D. B. Specs, milliner and dressmaker. 
Mrs. Lawrence, photographer. 

Tabor College. 

This college is located in the central part of the village of 
Tabor. 

The origin and growth of the college have been very remarka- 
ble Its founder was a Christian missionary, who longed to see 
this mighty valley overspread with an intelligent Christianity. 
After long and earnest prayer in the State of Ohio, a few families 
directed their course to Western Iowa, while it was still the resort 
of the wild Indian, and when the the howl of the wolf was heard 
at liight, and the reindeer bounded in freedom over the prairies. 

After many years of trial, privation, and suffering, an acade- 
my was opened in 1857, which, after nine successful years, in 
whioh ninety-six teachers were educated for the common schools, 
was organized with full college powers, July 23, 1866. 

The college is not under the control of any religious body, 
though its professors and most of its trustees are Congregational- 
ists, and it is fully endorse by the ministers and churches of that 
order. 

A convention of Congregational ministers and delegates from 
the Congregational churches of Western Iowa and Nebraska, held 
at Council Bluffs, September 19th, 20th, and 21st, 1866, about two 
months after its organization as a college, passed the following 
resolutions : 

Hesolved, First — That in the recent establishment of Tabor 
College we recognize an institution every way worthy of our con- 
fidence and support. 

Second — That we regard the location of the college at Tabor 
as peculiarly favorable to its success, on account of its healthful 
and central position, the unanimity and liberality of its citizens, 
and the Christian influences of the place, and do cordially com- 
mend it to the patronage of the Christian public. 



196 COUNCIL BLUFFS DIEECTORY. 



Third — That we approve the proposition to now raise $100,000 
as the first instalment on the endowment and building funds of 
Tabor College. 

To surround the college with such influences as shall lead the 
young men and ladies who are educated here to go out as earnest 
Christian workers is the one leading object of the community, and 
we doubt whether another instance can be found where a people 
have according to their means, given so liberally to the support of 
an institution of learning. 

The founder of the colony has deeded to the college lands 
valued at $3,800, and has besides given about $5,000 in cash and 
notes (one-half his entire property) ; has pledged his profits, and> 
if necessary to the success of the college, every dollar he pos- 
sesses. The citizens of Tabor gave and pledged unconditionally 
to the college, during the year 1866, $31,000, being $75 for each 
individual in the place, and, on the average, more than fifty per 
cent, on the assessed value of their property. In all, the people of 
Tabor and vicinity have given to the college more than $41,000. 

With God's blessing, this college is destined to be a powerful 
instrumentality in moulding aright the millions who are soon to 
find homes on the banks of the largest river in North America, 
and along the line of the railroad which is to be the central high- 
way of the world.
